  • Game of checkers artist Harry Roseland, an American ethnic genre painter of the late 19th and early to mid 20th centuries.

  • Artist Harry Roseland developed his own style of genre painting as it became increasingly popular in nineteenth century America.

  • This style offered him an outlet for his natural flair of telling a story, evoking an emotion or educating society through his paintings.

  • Roseland was primarily a self taught artist who chose to paint what he saw: common scenes in society.

  • Roseland abandoned the mawkishness that is the downfall of so many self educated artists when he found a topic that was close to home and yet largely unnoticed: the post Civil War blacks who formed the underpinning of Northeastern society.

  • Artist Harry Roseland specialized in interior genres filled with activity and emotion, whether it be the concentration in a game of checkers, the joy of being together or the stress of day to day living.

  • Harry Roseland's clever, skilful scenes of homely activities such as a game of checkers or letter reading were remarkably candid for the time period and are still a good reflection of the simple way of life of that era.

  • The artist naturalism depicted in the subjects presented a true realism of life.
